Vegan Month of Food: Last Day!

What a fantastic month of vegan cooking, shopping, eating, reviewing, reading, learning and mistake making it has been! I don’t think I’ve eaten better at any point in my life. Not only health-wise but taste-wise too.

*These posts were not about dinner but this is what we ate

I did manage to post something every day which I feel is a HUGE accomplishment considering how busy November turned out to be. We started out really strong with keeping track of the budget but as we started a ukulele ensemble and decided to host and cook Thanksgiving dinner for ourselves plus friends, we got sidetracked. We almost had a different meal every night for dinner and we ate very well. All in all, I consider our very first Vegan MoFo a success!

I also discovered some new awesome vegan food blogs like Food Baby thanks to the greatness that is MoFo. And we won a sampler box of Pure Bars as a prize over at Bitt of Raw too!

Come back tonight for our final MoFo meal…

************************************

We just got in from band practice. It’s cold out there! So of course we want something warm and delicious to compensate for the chilly weather. We figure what better way to see MoFo out than to tackle a vegan mac’n’cheese? There is no better way! I’m excited to see how this baby turns out. We’re using organic rice spelt noodles for the “mac” portion and the “cheese” part is a nutch-based sauce. We got the recipe from VegWeb which if you don’t know about it, you really should check it out.

Be back after dinner!

Okay. It wasn’t bad. But it wasn’t exactly what I was expecting either. Literate Zombie and I both felt like there was too much nutritional yeast. A few spices were missing too. But all in all, we have bellies full of not-so-bad vegan mac’n’cheeze. And chips and ranch[ish] dressing and seared slices of firm tofu.

Not-So-Bad Mac'n'Cheeze

And with that, I close our little piece for Vegan MoFo IV. We are completely satisfied with our MoFo experience and will be back again next year with maybe a more interesting theme that we totally stick to :)

Much Love,
